As last night's rain clouds are pushed into Wisconsin, the day's work begins at Proctor yard.
A busy Sunday afternoon at Pig's Eye. I count 21 locomotives: 2 Pacman CP SD40-2s, a couple Bandits, 3 NS units, TC&Ws...
CP power waiting their fate: MP15ACs 1433, 1404, 1540; GP38-2s 4414, 4417,4420 and 4429. Look close, 8756 is in the shop.
Crossing an inky Poplopen creek.
SD70M 4770, a veteran of the River Line heads south.
The morning's second train again heading north.
The first train of the morning, a northbound, cruises up the Hudson.
DMIR 211 puts on a smoke show on an afternoon that the sun played peek a boo behind the clouds.
While waiting for 261 to cross the Kettle River Bridge, we get flag waving Union Pacific diesels.
The evening shift starts at Rice's Point.
A quiet Sunday morning at Cenex.
Nosing into Wisconsin, amid the adulation of many rail fans, to hook up to the 261.
Slowly creeping into Proctor Yard is an MRF. the yard goats, DMIR 215 and 211, will sort their cars out to be shipped.
Just underway to start a day of moving gons full of reclaimed steel scrap to be recycled into rebars and billets.
No the 261 did not travel back in time. I do wonder how much rutabagas cost in the old girl's prime.
